Highland Falls, NY, home of West Point, the Hudson Valley's Best Kept Secret

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hudson Valley Homes and Land

I have discovered one of Orange County NY's best kept secrets; Highland Falls.  It's a wonderful little community close to West Point.  This makes for not only a beautiful place to live, but a sizzling hot rental market, if you want to either buy investment property or even rent your house out to West Pointers and their families who come to visit.  "Ring Day" or graduation day at West Point is booked at least a year in advance.  There is a profound shortage of lodging in the area.  If you house is set up property you can make several hundred dollars a NIGHT for renting your home.  I rented my New Paltz home, 40 miles away for $2000 for one week during graduation week and it was booked a year in advance.  Just advertise on VRBO.com, Vacation Rentals by Owner and your're off and running.

My brother has a house for rent for WP graduation in Highland Falls.  There are 4 bedrooms.  His cell phone is 845-784-9450.

Is your brother willing to rent his house 2 years in advance?  I understand people are making reservations for 2013 graduation.  I would be interested if so.

Thank you, Jane.
